Capital Requirements (Amendment) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019 - Motion to Approve (7 Oct 2019)

Lord Tunnicliffe: ...Act was that it would not introduce policy; it would essentially only use the appropriate powers where necessary. That assurance is repeated in paragraph 7.2, which says: “The financial services onshoring SIs are not intended to make policy changes, other than to reflect the UK’s new position outside of the EU, and to smooth the transition to this position”. What I found even more...

Scottish Parliament: Scotland’s Onshore Unconventional Oil and Gas Policy (3 Oct 2019)

Paul Wheelhouse: ...ministers of the receipt of any planning applications for unconventional oil and gas developments. Ministers can call in an application at any time for consideration, ensuring that decisions on onshore unconventional oil and gas developments can be made having regard to planning policy and procedure and the Scottish Government’s policy framework. That is not the approach that has been...

Over the Counter Derivatives, Central Counterparties and Trade Repositories (Amendment, etc., and Transitional Provision) (EU Exit) (No. 2) Regulations 2019 - Motion to Approve (1 Oct 2019)

Lord Bethell: ...to clear trades in a CCP can lead to disproportionate costs, especially the requirement to pay margin on CCP in cash. A technical solution would address this problem: for example, it would involve finding a way for the pension scheme to meet its obligations to the CCP without turning long-term assets into cash. Any solution must not pose a risk to the CCP. However, currently the EU has...

International Climate Action - Statement (26 Sep 2019)

Baroness Hayman: ...the DfID programmes for health, women and education that are so important. The Statement refers to offshore wind. Does the Minister accept that we are missing a trick in our reluctance to pursue onshore wind opportunities? Internationally, COP26 is a huge opportunity for action, but we also have the CHOGM meeting in Kigali next year. Are there plans to involve the Commonwealth in corporate...

Summer Adjournment (25 Jul 2019)

Cat Smith: ... the Member for Clwyd South (Susan Elan Jones) mentioned the 100th anniversary of the Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund, and I hope that her raising that in the House will help other veterans to find that source of support, as well as inform hon. Members so that we can signpost our constituents towards that help. The hon. Member for Glasgow South (Stewart Malcolm McDonald) agreed with the...

Adult Community Services: Puffin Habitats (26 Jun 2019)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: ...season. Spring is carnival time for puffins. They get to the safe cliff tops on Inner Farne and some of the other 27 islands and turn from solitary birds to wildly social courting birds intent on finding a mate and creating the next generation of puffins. If they can meet up with their mate from the previous year, they often do. Once they have found a mate, their outsized beak and big,...

Equality of Opportunity for Young People - Motion to Take Note (16 May 2019)

Baroness Grender: ...responses to the Twitter poll we held this morning in advance of this debate. I worry that too often the voices of the next generation are left out of the debate altogether. I hope we can instead find ways today to ensure that we can put young people at the very heart of policy-making. One of the basic principles of British society is that each generation helps out the next. The taxes of...

Reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions - Motion to Take Note (2 May 2019)

Baroness Featherstone: ...a shocking list of anti-green measures. I shall not repeat the whole litany, your Lordships will be relieved to hear, but there was the precipitous cutting of subsidies for solar and wind, banning onshore wind, causing thousands of job losses in solar, scrapping the original £1 billion carbon capture and storage project, cutting the renewable heat incentive, pushing ahead with fracking,...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Topical Questions (30 Apr 2019)

Alan Brown: Will the Minister confirm that the Secretary of State for Scotland put in writing his objection to onshore wind finding a route to market in Scotland? Why will the Government not release that correspondence in the interests of transparency?

Making Tax Digital for VAT (Economic Affairs Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (29 Apr 2019)

Viscount Trenchard: ...an inquiry into a tax event that took place 10 years ago more than in an inquiry into one that happened two years ago. Thirdly, the case for longer time limits for offshore matters, compared with onshore matters, is becoming weaker rather than stronger. The adoption of the common reporting standard by more than 100 countries has led to the current situation where HMRC is receiving an...

Scottish Parliament: Green New Deal (24 Apr 2019)

Lewis Macdonald: Mark Ruskell is absolutely right to make that point—that is what the Oil & Gas Technology Centre is. I am sure that, when he visits, he will find that it is doing many good and innovative things in offshore renewable energy. I am glad that he mentioned that, because although it is not on my list, it is a critical part of energy transition. Other big steps have already been taken. Aberdeen...

Scottish Parliament: Climate Emergency (27 Mar 2019)

Claire Baker: ...how we, as a country, will make significant changes that work in the interests of the world and not just our own interests. For many reasons, I have opposed the development of unconventional onshore oil and gas extraction. The area that I represent in Parliament would be prime land for that type of development and I have—many times—set out my concerns about the environmental impact;...

Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (Amendment) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019 - Motion to Approve (5 Mar 2019)

Lord Bates: ...for firms. While I acknowledge that this is a broad power to delegate to UK regulators, in a no-deal scenario the regulators will need flexibility to ensure that firms can reach compliance with onshoring regulatory changes in an orderly way and to respond to unforeseen pressures on firms. Given their supervisory responsibility for firms, the regulators, using their supervisory judgement,...

Net Zero Carbon Emissions: Uk’S Progress (28 Feb 2019)

Vicky Ford: ...we must also think about the actions that we need to take as a society, as individuals and as Governments. We must also think about how we harness the powers of science and technology to help us to find these solutions. I serve on the Science and Technology Committee. We are in the middle of doing a study on the technologies that we will need in order to meet the clean growth targets. It...

Bill Presented: Exiting the EU (Financial Services) (25 Feb 2019)

Anneliese Dodds: ...that must be met by exit day. For example, the instrument stipulates new rules for firms that are already in the process of making a part 7 insurance transfer between UK and EEA entities, with onshoring legislation introducing a savings provisions in relation to insurance business transfer schemes. But for it to be available in the two years following exit—as the Minister rightly said,...

Uncertificated Securities (Amendment and EU Exit) Regulations 2019 - Motion to Approve (25 Feb 2019)

Baroness Bowles of Berkhamsted: ...done by the EU, I am curious as to what this more proportionate approach entails. Does it imply that the first draft had been gold-plated in some way? What was in and has been taken out? I did not find a great deal of guidance in the documents. My next comment is a very general one. In both of these statutory instruments, and in particular in the second one dealing with exchanges and so...

UK Deep Sea Mining Industry (20 Feb 2019)

Claire Perry: ...delegation has been leading at those negotiations. Given your geographic interest, Mr Hosie, you will know that we have a very profound heritage in the extraction of hydrocarbons and minerals, both onshore and offshore, with the proudest tradition of high environmental standards. We will continue that commitment to transparency, science and evidence-based policy making and environmentally...

Official Listing of Securities, Prospectus and Transparency (Amendment etc.) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019 - Motion to Approve (18 Feb 2019)

Lord Bates: .... I will try to put some points on the record and address the specific technical points raised by the noble Baroness, Lady Bowles, and the noble Lord, Lord Tunnicliffe. What we are doing here is onshoring the regulations that already exist, which have gone through a scrutiny process involving the European Commission and regulators in the EU, the European Parliament and our own House. We...

Equivalence Determinations for Financial Services and Miscellaneous Provisions (Amendment etc) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019 - Motion to Approve (18 Feb 2019)

Lord Bates: ...County Council and returned it to the North Riding of Yorkshire, which was greeted with absolute acclamation. However, it was still not enough to get me past the 1997 general election, so I find myself here in your Lordships’ House. Indeed, the noble Lord, Lord Young, was there 40 years ago—so there is form. My point is that the Treasury is accountable to Parliament. It is possible to...

Offshore Helicopter Safety — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (6 Feb 2019)

Hannah Bardell: ...Orkney and Shetland (Mr Carmichael) rightly pointed out that they are still waiting for answers. It is a matter of deep regret that they are five and a half years on and still no further forward in finding out what happened. We now have an industry that is incredibly resilient and has done a huge amount of work to engage with the workforce, yet it still does not have confidence in Super...
